Check out this awesomely cool series of Doctor Who portraits created by artist Tim Doyle. I was late to the game with Doctor Who, but it quickly became one of my favorite series, and I'm so happy that it's still around. I hope it never ends. I love this set of illustrations featuring several of the Doctors and villains from the show. My favorite Doctor so far is Matt Smith, and my favorite villains are the weeping angels.

Saints go into this derby with Wigan in fine fettle, performing well in the league and into the fifth round of the Challenge Cup. Wigan are also still in the cup but their league form has been inconsistent, with Shaun Wane's men struggling to replicate the form that helped them to win the double last season. They'll need to be at their best here against a team who've taken maximum points from their first seven games. The later game sees Warrington go up against surprise package Widnes. Lanre Bakare

The 2014 Cannes Film Festival lineup is here, so now we can spend the next month trying to get as much intel on the movies as possible before they screen for critics and cinephiles on the Croisette. And of course, that means lots of images are here, so let's dive into three playing in Competition and one in Un Certain Regard. First up is Ryan Gosling's "Lost River," formerly known as "How To Catch A Monster" (via The Film Stage). Christina Hendricks, Ben Mendelsohn, Eva Mendes, Saoirse Ronan and "Doctor Who" star Matt Smith feature in this one that has been intriguingly described as "a really bizarre, fantasy-type story, in the vein of 'Goonies' meets 'Twin Peaks.' " Count us in. Next is Xavier Dolan's "Mommy," with the wunderkind filmmaker finally landing in Competition with his fifth feature. And like the wicked "Tom At The Farm," it looks like »

"It really hit me when I woke up the next morning. That's when I was like, 'Oh my God, where's my hair?!' But also, everyone kept me in good spirit. Everyone was laughing and telling jokes. Marvel are the best company to work for, they really are. They treat you really well.
"They made my hair into the most incredible well-made wig and they gave it to the Star Wars people. It's just so »

There is also a spoiler for Doctor Who: The Night Of The Doctor.
We may as well start with those words just up there. See how clear that bit in bold at the top is? Those two lines took me a few seconds to type out, and it gives you a clear indication of whether what I'm going to talk about will spoil something for you or not. Note that the headline doesn't include spoilers, either.
It's simple. It does the job. It's a system used around the planet by many far better websites than this one.
Unfortunately, it's not a system used by all. »

Spoiler Alert: This article discusses episodes from the Seventh Series, The 50th Anniversary Special and The Latest Christmas Special.
When it comes to film and television, no matter what efforts the writers, actors and director may make, there are always going to be audience members who dislike the final product. This goes double for Doctor Who, one of the few shows where the replacement of the lead actors is expected by its fans and is a central aspect of the plot. However, with new actors comes a new approach to material and a shift in tone for the show, which, more often than not, draws a divided response from the Doctor Who fandom.
The departure of Matt Smith has definitely caused a distinct divide, despite his replacement being the Academy Award-winning veteran actor Peter Capaldi. While some fans have declared they would not watch a show with an older Doctor, »
